I met a guy three days ago and I like him. I have never dated anyone in real life before and not even virtually. I told him I like him and he said he likes me too he just needs time to say I love you to me. I really want to be in a relationship with him. We live in different countries. We both are 17.

People fall in love online all the time. In my opinion it's perfectly legit. Whether it can work out is a whole different matter. It can't continue indefinitely online. It must eventually be in person, and not just a quick meeting. Eventually one person must move.
I think with the internet, many young people don't realize just how freaking big the world is. They see this person and fall in live with them, but the distances are vast, so vast that they can't be comprehended. There are also legal issues, immigration laws, money issues, etc. The cost of going for a short visit might be prohibitive. You can't just move to another country either. They might not even let you go visit, let alone move there.
Even for someone older who has better financial and other means, getting together is not easy. For someone young, it might be completely unattainable.
I've listed a lot of problems. I don't mean to be so negative about it. I don't mean you should give up on someone you like. I say it so you understand the reality. All of those things can be overcome, and often are. But you need to understand what you are getting into.
There's another big one I haven't mentioned. If you met in person you might not click. The chemistry you have online might not be there.
My own advice is that if you think you care for someone, great, go for it. But I also think you need to watch the amount of time and emotions you put into it. There needs to be some real progress toward an in-person relationship within a reasonable amount of time. It has to move forward, not reach a certain point, but progress no further because of distance.0

I believe you can however you should be careful the Internet is really dangerous and not everybody is who they say they are. However you never really know how something could turn out. I met my husband online, we chit chatted but I thought he was an ass. We eventually went out for pie and 2 weeks later were engaged and 2 months after meeting we were married. Love at first sight. So yeah I believe it can work. But not every story is like mine. There's good and bad people. Honestly the best you can do is be careful, don't make quick decisions like saving money to see him in a country you don't know and stay in places you don't know without a travel buddy or people knowing where you are. You will never really know how things will work unless you meet. But in the end just believe that if it's ment to be it will be. But anything forced will only end in heartbreak. Best of luck to you both! (:2
